Don't be disappointed if the twins have modern names, especially any girl child.

I think I read it in a interview that PC gave to Svensk Damtidning just hours before the wedding of princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill.

I think it might be boy/girl twins, though I hope it's same-sex twins. Perhaps Sylvie for a girl? IIRC, Charlène's grandmother is/was Sylvia and it's a name rising in popularity. As for a boy, I really like the sound of Gaston Grimaldi, but that might be a bit too far out a guess.

Charles Rainier (Michel) Louis and Sylvie Antoinette Grace (Caroline)

And my current guesses for godparents:
The heir: Queen Máxima of the Netherlands; Caroline, Princess of Hanover; Chris LeVine; and Gareth Wittstock.
The spare: King Felipe VI of Spain; Sophie, Countess of Wessex; Donatella Knecht de Massy; and Sean Wittstock.

Gosh, that's a bit of a mouthful! I think we can safely say that we won't be seeing a Prince Tancrède. I'm usually good at guessing the pronunciation of names, but am unsure as to how I would go about pronouncing this one.

You're basically repeating what I said to build up your post count. You also left the accent off of Tancrède.

^^^^^^ Thanks for that!
Although i quite like the idea of such a historic name i have a feeling that the babies will have a name that's easily pronounced in english (probably because P.Charlene is not a really avid french-speaker imo).
But ofcourse that still leaves many options

I think a boy and a girl would be nice. Not sure about a boy's name, but my obvious choice would be Ranier as I love that name. For the girl I think Charlotte Grace would be nice as it is similar to the name Charlene.
I am not very good at the Godparent question. Princess caroline springs to mind and for some reason I wonder about CP Victoria and/or Prince Daniel only because they went to their wedding.

I think that a part Maxima or Sophie other royals are ruled out qas godparents... I'm very doubtuful about any godparent from the spanish monarchy... Maybe because I don't see any connection od partly because any of them attended the wedding... I think Princess Caroline should be one of the godparents for the heir though

I was thinking about a Catholic Royal and remembered that the late Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain was the godmother of The Prince of Monaco, so I saw The King of Spain as a potential godparent. And Prince Albert nomited The Crown Prince of Norway to the Ice Bucket Challenge, so I suppose they're good friends.

I see The Princess of Hanover as more fitting to be a godmother of the second baby, as she has experience on being heir presumptive and can giver her nephew or niece some advice on being the spare.

Do you think they will choose only catholics godparents?

As far as I know, each baby has to have at least two Catholics godparents, but they can have extra non-Catholics godparents.

After reading the interview of Princess Charlene who praised her mother in law, I think that the couple will call their daughter Grace if they have a girl or girls .

A boy and a girl (what I wish) Charles and Grace
2 boys Charles (firstborn) and Maxime
2 girls Alice (firstborn) and Grace

Godparents Queen Maxima, Caroline, Stéphanie, Chris Levine, Gareth and a prince of Polignac may be godparents

I have a feeling they will choose two names that they like and not of a Grimaldi ancester.
Althought I really like Alice for a girl and it's pronounced the same way in English and French, which I think is important when you're raised in a bilingual family.

As for the godparents I would go with Albert's sisters and Charlene's brothers.
Or Pauline and Charlotte if they want younger godmothers.

I apologise for nitpicking, but I've always heard that Alice is pronounced similarly to "Elise" in French, but of course with more emphasis on the A. Or at least the native French speakers I've met and know pronounce Alice this way. It's quite a nice name, but somehow I don't think it will be chosen. I do think Grace has a very strong possibility. As I've said in a few previous posts, there are a lot of gems within the historical Monegasque Princes and Princesses, so it would be lovely IMO if a few of those names could be resurrected.

Now, I also rather like Honoré for a Prince. Florestan Honoré as a combination is divine! Both names come across as a little pretentious for me, so I don't think that combination would need a third or fourth name.
